Chief technology officer of Grofers India, Varun Khurana, has decided to move on with the hyperlocal grocery and fresh food delivery startup in less than a year. He was owning and operating the on-demand delivery app Grofers.
An IIT Delhi Alumni, Khurana, spent a very little time with Gurgaon-based company, which is backed by investors like Japanese telecom, media and internet giant SoftBank, Lee Fixel-led Tiger Global and Sequoia Capital, among others.
News about the move has been confirmed by Grofers chief executive Albinder Dhindsa, but declined to share further information. Varun, too, was not reachable for his comments.
According to Albinder, Khurana will serve his notice period, which ends at the end of the current month.
